    My occasional partner has the Forza TI-10000. First I will give you background, then a review.The TI-series is a couple years old now, and I have had the TI-9000 CNT for eight months (it actually recently broke...) and I can tell you that the racket did, as it advertised, have great control. Combined with BG66UM, the racket's power felt very good too. From what I can tell, the Forza TI-10000 is probably just a stiffer TI-9000 CNT (mine was FLEXIBLE). I have faith in this racket and I think that it competes with the top rackets of other brands. My friend who is a big fan of control liked the feeling (as in the other Forza rackets I have bought). The series is not made to be for doubles players who enjoy the very, very fast drive game, but this racket is great for singles and doubles where big smashes are needed. That being said, the series sort of go like thisKEVLAR>TITANIUM>N-FORZE+GRAPHITELIGHT for big hittingthe opposite for fast doubles playThe titanium is a good, multipurpose series that I would recommend.

    Warning: if your stringer is not experienced, he may not be able to use a mere 10m of string to string this. There are 10.2m of Forza String packs available, or he can string from a reel, if he is inexperienced.

    Thanks for the information. I just received some Forza racquets. It will take me some time to try out thoroughly.

    Do you have the new FZ Titanium 11.000? I am very curious to how that will turn out.

    Thank you PinkDawg. Is there a Yonex/Li-Ning racket that you think TI-10000 would closely resemble.

    Yes. I have never fully dedicated myself to Yonex or Li-Ning, but from what I have tried from friends, the TI-10000 is like an Arcsaber 10 with more focus on control. Keep in mind that I have only tried an Arcsaber 10 for about 20 minutes. I don't buy Yonex or Li-Ning, ever, beyond shuttles and grips.

    FZ TI-11,000 is now in stock in Singapore and selling fast. Tried the racket personally and it is really fantastic. 4 different series to cater to different styles of play and control. Will definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys power play.

    If you like speed in a doubles games, go for N-Forze 10,000 furious (3U) or N-Forze 10,000 I power (4U). Love this 2 racket as well for fast doubles game especially if you are in front.

    I got the Ti 11.000 S recently. It's great. It feels very light, has an even balance, plays stiff, and has more than enough weight around the head for decent power. It's very maneuverable as well. I smash with it around as hard as with the Yonex Vt80, which I have a bit of trouble maneuvering and swinging quickly.
